The introduction of a new classroom technology offers a wonderful opportunity for whole class discussion, exploration and collaboration. You included!
In our experience students are often very savvy with new technology and can uncover features and tricks we had no idea existed.
Let’s create an environment to explore Socrative together! Model for students how it’s okay to make mistakes and that learning is an active process. It will be fun, enriching, and take the pressure off you to be the master of all technologies.
Discuss these Questions as you explore Socrative
What do you notice or observe about Socrative?
Can you connect this to any other technologies?

Project your screen and run some activities.
A quick question activity such as True/False or Short Answer.
A Student Paced quiz (include MC, TF and SA questions)
Here are some things students may learn during a Student-paced quiz
“To select an answer, click on it and it will turn bright green (and stay that way).”
“You can change questions using the “Previous” or “Next” buttons or by clicking on the left navigation.”
“Answers can be changed at anytime.”
“You can choose multiple answers, but you should only do so if the question calls for it. If you choose the correct answer, but also select a second one that is incorrect, the whole question will be graded as incorrect.”
“Question Types have their own colors. True/False is always Purple”
“In order to submit all your answers and end the quiz, press “FINISH” in the top right corner. Once you press finish you cannot change your answers and will get the waiting screen.”
Have a great class!
